this was a fun and interesting tour of the Steam Whistle brewery, made better with a beer in hand! The tour cost is pretty minimal and you get a souvenir included in the price - we chose the 6 beers & a bottle opener, since there was 2 of us. The bar area provides 2 free samples whilst you wait...

Brewery tour was great. We had a VIP tour which we had won. Cool building and history, lots of beer and our tour guide was very informative. Good atmosphere. A good way to have a couple of cold ones!

We visited SWB on Jan 25th with friends and had a great time. Brandon was our tour guide and did an excellent job explaining the brewing process and keeping us entertained throughout. We went on a couple of other beer tours this same weekend and this one, by far, was the best. Well taken care of and great value at... More

Both my husband and I do not drink beer however; we enjoyed the Steam Whistle tour. Beer drinkers will love the free samples and bottle of beer handed to you right before the tour begins. They also allow you to hang out a bit after the tour and enjoy more samples - bottoms up!! Our tour guide did a great... More

Had a lot of fun here before visiting ripley's. Very generous with samples, tour was priced well, and comes with a gift and free bottle, so whats wrong with that! Tour was fun and informative. I'd visit again, but more for the samples!

Steam Whistle is a local product and business Torontonians should all be proud of. I've been to events at Steam Whistle but today was my first official tour. The tour guide was definitely knowledgeable on all aspects - history of the site/building, brewing process, fun facts - and really personable. Well worth the $ for the tour & the souvenir... More

Ok this is not the most exciting attraction in this action-packed city however it is well worth a visit. We would recommend you tie it in say with a visit to the Baseball ! The welcome is good and the tour entertaining. You then get to try their tasty refreshing Pilsner which is great on a warm day. The location... More

If you're a beer lover then you will love this. If you don't like beer, you will still like it. For $10 you get the tour which isn't lengthy, but includes a beer and selection of a steam whistle beer glass to take home or beer opener. Opt for the glass as they are worth $8 whilst the beer opener... More

Well it might not be the greatest adventure but certain factors do make it a great place to visit while in Toronto. I had heard about the place from my friends and decided to check out all the hype regarding the place. The staffs are one of the finest I have ever seen in a place because they knew how... More
